Lost a follower with the comics post, but good tbh, because if you can’t understand that some struggles aren’t about you then there’s really nothing left to say
most people fighting for equality and equity in society do not spit on allies or people that are privileged who agree with them and wish to change the system. They reject “allies” who make everything about them, demand pats on the back, and try to infiltrate fights to benefit them and make themselves look good while telling the oppressed to be “nicer about it” and “to be patient”, and then complain bitterly about how MEAN ppl are being to them and they just wanted to help, gosh!!!! and then characterize the oppressed as rude, belligerent, and irrational, this undermining and devaluing them and their position. They are silencing and demeaning minorities - exactly like the institutions they claim to fight.
So next time you feel like drawing a comic or agree with a comic that ridicules and shames minorities for working towards equality and being fed the fuck up with false allies who do nothing but hurt and hinder, then please, do not even bother. You’re not much of an ally, you’re not any kind of a friend, and nobody needs you.
Basically around every single social/environmental/whatever issue, there’s a bunch of people who are juts there to increase their own social status. Even if they don’t realize it, you can always, always tell.
I always hated those cunts. And I’ve never even been the subject of any of the issues I sued used to care about. On the other hand… the word ally doesn’t really imply any understanding beyond common goals, goals that are relatively tangible because people not affected by an issue don’t have the same understanding of it as people who are.
